Lauren Manzo's marriage is dunzo.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum recently confirmed reports that she and husband Vito Scalia are divorcing after eight years of marriage. But despite the split, the former reality star insists their parting of ways is completely amicable.

"By now you guys have seen the news that has broken, I just want to let you guys know we're all good," Caroline Manzo's daughter told fans in an Oct. 24 Instagram video. "This has been done for a very long time. The last part of the process was filing. We were on the same page, this is something we did together."

In fact, Lauren insists that she and her ex—who share 6-year-old daughter Markie—remain on good terms amid the divorce.

"Vito and I love and respect each other and we continue to move on as a family," the 35-year-old continued. "All that matters to us is that our daughter is happy and healthy. Her privacy is important to us."

As for why the former couple didn't publicly address their split until now?

"We haven't been on TV in seven years," the Bravo star explained, "which is why we didn't feel the need for some dramatic announcement. We continue to move forward with love and respect for each other and we will always be a family."

Fans saw Lauren and Vito's love story play out on RHONJ during her family's stint on seasons one through five before Caroline left the series in 2014. 

She and Vito, 37, officially tied the know in a July 2015 wedding that was filmed for the Bravo spinoff Manzo'd With Children.
